How Much Does Medicare Pay For Doctor Visits?
- 5527 POINTSContact Meview profileMarlin McKelvyPROPresident, Consumer Directed Benefit Solutions, Memphis, TennesseeLess and less, just ask your doctor. Medicare pays on a fee scheduled basis and the reimbursement level varies based upon the type of doctor's visit you are having and the services that are rendered. As such, there is no one flat amount that the doctor gets paid for any and all office visits. What is pretty consistent is that your doctor is almost certainly getting paid less to see a Medicare patient than they are getting paid to provide the same office visit service to a person covered under private health insurance. This is why you are seeing a steady shrinkage in the number of doctors who accept Medicare patients or who will take on any additional Medicare patients.Answered on June 27, 2014+41 0+1 this answerflag this answerview more answers by Marlin McKelvy
